What is Pipe Relining?

Pipe relining is the process of repairing broken, leaking or blocked pipes and drains. Relining involves inserting a textile liner coated with epoxy resin into the broken section of drain, which then hardens into a long-lasting inner pipe which is just a few mm thick. The process forms a strong bond to the pipe and as it is structurally sound. It can also restore pipes where sections are missing or have separated. We can complete the drain relining in under a day, so your drains can be back to their normal use in no time.

What are the Benefits of relining broken pipes?

  • In some cases, pipe relining can be a much cheaper option than replacing the existing pipes.
  • As we’re not digging trenches or breaking through concrete, it creates a lot less mess!
  • If the pipe in question is located under a tiled floor such as in a bathroom, it saves having to replace the bathroom floor and potentially the bathroom suite entirely.
  • Doesn’t affect the structural integrity of buildings or infrastructure.
  • The process can be finished in under a day.
  • The end result of pipe relining is that it is actually stronger than brand new PVC pipe. It is in fact 10x stronger!
  • Pipe Relining can eliminate tree root problems in the relined section of the drain – for good.
  • Pipe Relining is Council approved.

​RTL Trades Pipe Relining Process

Step 1 – we conduct a thorough onsite consultation and CCTV inspection of the drainage system so we can locate the damaged or broken pipes.
Step 2 – prepare the drain by removing any tree roots and clean the drain with a high pressure water cleaner to remove any debris.
Step 3 – repair and reline or patch the pipe. We then leave the resin to cure for a minimum of 6 to 8 hours.
Step 4 – we carry out a final CCTV inspection of the newly relined pipe.
Step 5 – we prepare a relining report for you, which will include videos of both the before and after pipe relining.
